Dated, dreary, dingy ..... this place desperately needs an overhaul. The bedroom was large enough, but the bathroom was so small that I kept bumping my elbows every time I turned around. The wifi is appalling, with two hours allowed at a time which gets used up while you're still trying to get a signal. The bed is comfortable, that's...

For a 3 star motel, this property ticks all the most important boxes. Yes, the decor is tired and dated but it is clean and the units have new beds. This includes beautiful white sheets and comfy pillows. The one downfall is the shower water pressure. Took me ages to rinse my hair of shampoo and then conditioner. And I...

Spacious room, stayed with 4 children. Older decor, but clean. Double bed was very hard, making for a sleepless, uncomfortable night. Children seemed to sleep ok in their beds. Sliding door to the bathroom didn't open/close easily, kept getting stuck (had to lift the door and push/slide it). Probably won't stay again.

We stayed here in double occupancy room. It was old but well kept. The bathroom was quite small. The motel is situated near city centre and all the attractions are just a short distance away. Ample parking is available in the motel. We didn't try the restaurant/breakfast service, but the menu looked small and simple. The only problem was the...

Stayed her overnight aa a stop over between melbourne and adelaide. The motel was clean, and the staff were friendly and very helpful. Conveniently located, with the sites, and ameneties a short drive away. Price was good, and the room was very spacious. Overall great value for money.

Stayed at this motel and paid $115 for the night on our way to the great ocean road. Wow the whole place is very dated and smelt of stale cigarettes not great if you have asthma. Shower had good water flow and pressure but that's about all that was good. Wifi also was a bit crap. Won't be staying again....

Wow is this decor dated (see photos). It reminded me a lot of staying at my grandmas house when I was a kid, the tiles, the seashell soap holder, the shower screen, even the crockery was old (and randomly mismatched?). We got a different type of random mug each day (shape, size, vintage) and the menu for brekkie was most...

We stayed in the interconnecting rooms, and found them to be clean and adequate. This arrangement was great for us traveling as an extended family. Although the rooms were a little dated, the bathrooms were recently renovated, which was nice. The owner was friendly and helpful, and he offered some great advice regarding things to see and do. Great value.

Whilst it was clean and quite comfortable, it did have very tired appeal to it, could use a major facelift not worth the money for what you get, considering the competition around the district, tiny bathroom and smallest flat screen tv imaginable.2hrs of free wifi when others are offering free internet. We stayed two nights 208.00

Hello Sylvia K Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you felt that you did not get value for money because of the bathroom, and as to the TV - your room had a 32 inch size screen. Whilst I would regard that as a medium size (for a middle-of-the-road standard motel like mine) I guess...
